Geocache Description:

Vanha niitty Saarenputaan vesiväylän välittömässä läheisyydessä.
The old field nearby Saarenpudas water way.

Saarenpudas on kapea vesiväylä joka sijaitsee Saarenkylän alueella ja erottaa Saaren mantereesta yhdistäen Ounas- ja Kemijoen toisiinsa.
Keskiajan talonpoika iski kirveensä honkaan ja rakensi talonsa kehikon Saarenkylän kentille ruokkien karjaansa vehmaassa niittyluonnossa. 1600 - luvulla lohi- ja haukivedet toivat riistan ja kaskiviljelyn lisäksi särvintä ruokatalouteen.
Kätköpaikka on vanhaa niittyaluetta. Paikalla kasvaa puita, joista yhdestä löytyy kookas linnun, luultavasti harakan, pesä. Huom! Ethän paikkaa etsiessäsi tallo mahdollisia viljelyksiä lähipelloilla!

Saarenpudas is the tight water way in Saarenkylä which is the part of Rovaniemi. It integrates two rivers, Ounasjoki-river and Kemijoki-river and separates the isle from the main land.
The first farmers came to this area in the middle age and built their houses and made the fields to this rampant environmet. Fishing and hunting also were important living ways in that time.
The cache place is the old cultivation area. There grows several threes on the place and in one of those you can find the big bird's nest. Notice! When you look the place, don't walk on the fields which are plant.
